Photo of Painting for Friday

Moving right along
And we're off! I had the day, the time, the motivation, the set up, and the materials! Yay for me!

You know, sometimes you get those days that just click, things happen, mostly the right things. As the day opened up I decided to pull out my new plan and schedule from the Blast Off class and keep going.

I felt good after hearing that another artist uses their morning for house/errands and the afternoon for painting, the evenings for family/whatever. I liked that. I'm a morning person anyway, but I don't necessarily need to paint at that time. If things need doing I can comply in the A.M. and have the house neat so my brain is clear to paint in the P.M.

Perfect!

I ran my errands, visited the art supply shop and purchased the largest Arches watercolor block made, on sale! I added to my brush collection, also on sale. I picked up a tube of Holbein. You said it, on sale. I asked about oil painting mediums for the future. Then I ran home.

After lunch, on schedule, I went to the studio to keep working on this latest painting. I thought about it all night and painted it in my head. I knew what I wanted to do when I came to the studio.

Things are looking up.

    1. Katiejane-I try to keep my days as stress free as possible, so doing a little bit each day helps.

  4. Your work is so great! I agree with you about getting your errands done early and leaving your mind free for creating afterwards. I do the same thing (when I don't have to go to work-which is every day except Sat. and Sun), but if, by chance, I get a treat and am off during the week I do my chores first and paint/create the rest of the day.

    1. Faye, thank you so much for your compliment! I ended up staying home to raise my kids and never went back to work, except for the full time job at home. Now that I watch my granddaughter I'm still fitting art into my day, but now it's on the schedule!
